ARCHIVE ! Follow-up > Directory of Masters Programmes in Learning & Work
 

The following directory presents about 80 examples of Masters programmes which have been in operation for some time or newly introduced (see overview of progress with Masters). Also included are examples of  European or International Masters programmes. Most programmes selected for this directory correspond to the key terms identified for HRD related study fields (see definition and key terms). 

The Masters programmes contained in the directory (2004/2005) are arranged by country - see map below:

The entries in the directory follow a common pattern:

  • Institution (name and home page)
  • Title of Masters programme
  • HRD related component (within broader programme)
  • Information on programme (home page) 
  • Contact (name and email address)
The main source of information for each entry is the individual programme home page. Based on this, the data is provided in the programme's original language (see definition and key terms). The following abbreviations are used in the directory:
MA - Master of Arts
MBA - Master of Business Administration
MSc - Master of Science
It should be emphasised that the selection of Masters programmes in this directory is still preliminary, without any claim of being systematic or representative. Initial information was collected from a range of sources including the following:
  • the national reports submitted to the Bologna conference in Berlin, September 2003; 
  • the country websites mentioned in those national reports; 
  • the DAAD (German academic exchange service) database on higher education courses abroad;
  • the Yahoo catalogue of universities and colleges;
  • on-line directories of MBA programmes;
  • selected home pages of institutions;
  • information obtained from members of the EHRD Network.
The information compiled from these sources was checked against the original evidence provided by the home pages of the institutions and programmes concerned. In this process, several initial examples of  Masters programmes had to be abandoned while a lot of new examples were discovered.
